We sit down with Franchell Hamilton, a bariatric surgeon, to explore the intriguing link between genetics, brain function, and obesity. She shares her insights into why many patients don’t feel full even after eating, even post-bariatric surgery. We delve into the role of dopamine signaling in the brain, genetic factors like the DRD4 gene, and how they influence eating behavior and body weight. Join us for a deep dive into the complex science behind overeating and the potential game-changing impact of once-a-week GLP-1 medications.
Franchell Hamilton is a bariatric surgeon.
She discusses the KevinMD article, “Uncovering the truth about genetic mutations and weight loss.”
